Geography Cala Millor

The resort of CALA MILLOR MALLORCA is located in the north-eastern part of the island of Mallorca in the western Mediterranean. From north to south it takes in the coastal area between La Costa dels Pins and S’Illot, with Port Vell, Es Port Verd, Cala Bona, Cala Millor, Sa Punta de n’Amer and Sa Coma in between.

Administratively the resort belongs to two different municipalities: Son Servera, which includes La Costa dels Pins, Es Port Verd, Cala Bona and the northern part of Cala Millor; and Sant Llorenç des Cardassar, which takes in part of Cala Millor, Sa Punta de n’Amer, Sa Coma, S’Illot and the village of Son Carrió. Like the town of Cala Millor, S’Illot is also shared by two municipalities, with the Ca n’Amer torrent marking the natural border between the municipalities of Manacor and Sant Llorenç des Cardassar.

The area has differentiated features in terms of its population, geography and flora and fauna, some of which are quite remarkable. Other characteristics are related to the economic exploitation of the territory, despite the fact its main role now is as a residential and tourism zone, with the latter being the driving force behind the economy.

The part of the coast belonging to the municipality of Son Servera is rockier with small, shallow coves and stony shores. The southern zone –Cala Millor, Sa Coma and S’Illot– has longer sandy beaches that are separated by the Sa Punta de n’Amer peninsula, a protected nature area that was declared a Nature Area of Special Interest in the 1980s and acts as a true “green lung” between the built-up zones.

This part of the eastern coast of Mallorca is bordered by the sea and the Llevant Mountains, which rise in the north of the Artà Peninsula and continue, with breaks, parallel to the coast and with hills and mountains that are never higher than 600 metres, as far as Felanitx, Sa Colònia de Sant Jordi and Santanyí. They end on the island of Cabrera that emerges to the south of the island of Mallorca.

From north to south, the Llevant Mountains are made up of various small ranges such as the Artà Massif, the Serra de Sant Jordi, the Serra Llonga and the Serra de Calicant. The highest points are Puig de Calicant (473 m), Puig des Telègraf (418 m) and Puig d’en Sard (413 m).
